During the talks between the delegation of Pristina and Serbia in Brussels, the sides agreed on Serbia to have its own telecommunication company in Kosovo.

Member of the Serb delegation, general Dragan Vladisavlevic, has declared that the sides agreed on Serbia having its own company of telecommunication in Kosovo.

“The Serb people will continue to use everything like they have done so far”, said Vladisavlevic, who said that this can be considered as an achievement for the Serb side.

Vladisavlevic explained that upon Pristina’s request, Austria will make application on behalf of Kosovo about the telephone code, but according to him, nothing changes when it comes to the charges of telephone calls.

Although an agreement was reached on telecommunication, it will not be signed until an agreement is reached on other issues, for which talks are being held in Brussels.

Part of the agenda of the talks are also the creation of the association of Serb communes, energy and free movement on Iber river bridge in Mitrovica.

The biggest obstacle may be the agreement on energy, as Pristina wants to own the power distribution system, something which is unacceptable for Belgrade. /ibna/
